From the magazine this month:



It may well be the next big sports craze. For some time, the race has been on to create man-made waves that are good enough for surfers to use and a number of centres opening up across Europe this summer claim to have cracked the formula. Have they succeeded? Read our feature to find out. We’re in Venice next. Few tourists venture beyond the old town, but the floating city’s lesser-known spots are ripe for exploration right now if you follow our handy island-hopping guide. And, finally, to football. The EUROs are taking place in France this month, but I bet you couldn’t tell me much about the very first European Championships in 1960. They were, without exaggerating, the most exciting footie event you’ve never heard of. I hope I’ve piqued your interest and see you next month.
